One of the great lost classics of the American frontier era, Homer Wheeler's memoir of life in the west is exciting, humorous, and provides one of the best accounts of a vanished time. As a cowboy, Indian fighter, miner, businessman, and soldier, he lived the end of one of the most tumultuous times in U.S. history.

Wheeler was with General Ranald MacKenzie on his raid on Dull Knife's village in 1876. They came away with relics recovered from the dead 7th Cavalry soldiers killed the previous June. He was also with General Phil Sheridan the next summer on a visit to the Little Bighorn battlefield, site of George Armstrong Custer's demise.

With wit and great attention to detail, Wheeler keeps your attention throughout. Recognized during his career for his work with Native American tribes, he provides a wealth of information about many that he met.

This book has never before been offered as an ebook and is back in print after many decades.
